The '''Société entomologique de France''', or French Entomological Society, is devoted to the study of insect
s. The society was founded in 1832 in Paris
The society was created by eighteen Parisian entomologists on January 31, 1832. The first (honorary) president was Pierre André Latreille
(1762-1833) who was elected unanimously and established the goal of the society to contribute to and progress the development of entomology
in all its aspects. The main publications of the society are ''Bulletin de la Société Entomologique de France'', ''Annales de la Société Entomologique de France
'' and, for a few years, ''L'Entomologiste, Revue d'Amateurs''. The library contains 15,000 volumes and 1,500 titles of old or current literature.
